Being online comes with the fear of hacks, scams, malware, and more. Below are some tips to help you keep an eye out.
Create Complex Passwords.
Creating strong, unique passwords for all your critical accounts really is the best way to keep your personal and financial information safe. If you can’t remember your passwords, Google offers you an option to save all your passwords & access them when you need them.
Keep your antivirus up to date
Make sure you run frequent security scans on your computer’s hard drive, making sure you carry out deep scans once in a while. This ensures that your device is kept safe from malware. Also updating your virus definitions is something that you should look at. Malware is actively created every hour of the day and the creators of antiviruses work hard to keep their databases updated to ensure you are not caught unawares.
Practice Safe Browsing, keep your guard up.
Always be cautious about what you do online, which sites you visit, what you share & download. Use comprehensive security software, and make sure to back up your data regularly in case something goes wrong. By taking preventative measures, you can save yourself from headaches later on.
Be Careful Who You Meet Online
Some characters that you meet online are not always who they say they are. Be careful with whom you share your information online. Make sure before you share your credit card & private information are legit.
